Whether you need of a fast appetizer, a nutritious afternoon snack, or a fun option for lunch boxes, these healthy hummus pinwheels could be the perfect answer. I love how you can switch up the flavor of hummus for a completely different vibe, and even use different veggies, based on the season or what you have on hand. I’ve included some of our favorite options in the recipe. We originally shared this many years ago, but have added more information to this post!

Special Diet Notes: Hummus Pinwheels
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, optionally gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, optionally soy-free, vegan, vegetarian, and optionally food allergy-friendly. Note that some hummus varieties do use soybean oil. Choose the tortillas that work best for your dietary needs.
For grain-free hummus pinwheels, there actually are grain-free “tortillas” products, such as these coconut wraps. Since they do tend to be smaller, you may need to use 3 or 4 wraps.
- Spread a thin layer of hummus on each tortilla.
- Divide the remaining ingredients between tortillas, on one side of each tortilla.
- Starting with the veggie/fruit side, roll the tortillas tightly and secure with toothpicks.
- Slice into pinwheels.
Winter Greens Variation: Substitute kale leaves or baby spinach for the lettuce.
Whole Grain Option: There are whole wheat options in stores, but I also like to make my own spelt tortillas.
